BOURGOGNE BLANC

Chardonnay 100%

This Bourgogne Blanc comes exclusively from Chardonnay grape, planted on clayey and chalky soils. The Chardonnay, now grown all over the world, is native from Bourgogne and shows here its purest expression.
Our Bourgogne blanc has a beautiful aromatic structure, a lot of fineness and a great balance. It is a real “pleasure wine”.
To serve with a plate of sausages and ham, cold cuts, mixed salad or of course “gougères” (another speciality from Bourgogne!).

 

(AM=87) A ripe and attractively layered nose speaks mainly of floral and white-fleshed fruit aromas. There is fine intensity to the very rich and rounded middle weight flavors that terminate in a crisp bitter lemon-inflected finish. This isn't refined but it offers very good depth and persistence for its level.
